    guild_master's Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) review

    Avatar image for guild_master

    Best in series?, yes but expected a bit more

    Apart from all the things already said by many of the reviewers out, this game just rocks.Nintendo threw in some new characters, yes Snake is in the game as well as Sonic but I hoped more new characters were introduced not in the form of clones that is. Not satisfied by the roster Nintendo launched with the game different modes, Master Pieces being one of them. In the master piece part of the game it will let you try out a few of the games available from Nintendo via the shop, although the master piece add-on is quite a good feature, it seems to appeal only to the die hard Nintendo fan.

    The WFC (Nintendo Wifi Connection) is not as good as expected. Even when playing locally with friend codes it tends to lag not serious, but it lags not like the ones found on Halo 3 (no hard feelings towards Halo 3, but it's annoying when you are playing lone wolves and all of a sudden bam! serious lag). Another issue appears when attempted to play with anyone it seems becomes impossible to find a match because the WFC servers are getting more work than they can handle, this is an issue Nintendo has commented on, and is currently working on it. It's getting really hard to find on-line matches without getting a message that says "you ave been disconnected...", I hope Nintendo gets more severs up and running.

    Apart form that minor issue the game hold up to be very good whether you are playing alone; Classic and The subspace Emissary are bound to keep playing for hours until you unlock every single player, stage, song, trophy... you know what I mean there are tons of stuff to unlock.
    On the other hand multiplayer mode, I think this is where the game really shines the most, what beats a couple of your best friends playing an chaotic, fast-paced, mind blowing brawl if you ask me nothing, but that is up to you to judge. I've never had so much fun beating up Pikachu since Pokemon yellow came out, seriously. All your friends will begging to play over and over again. Whether you are playing with stock, stamina or even coins you'll have fun, you can even challenge your friends in a little tourney to prove who is the best brawler.

    Nintendo went over the top with this game, but I must warn you if you have played previous versions of smash, brawl may seem as a do over; Wrong!, the game is so good an addictive that I'm playing as i write this review, and if your a first timer, be prepared to get hooked on one of the best selling franchises of all time.

      Brawl really leaves nothing unfinished, almost no feature omitted 0

      I've been playing video games for almost as long as I can remember. As of this review, I've beaten 572 and played many more. Perhaps one of my favorite games so far is Super Smash Bros. Brawl. OK, it's only in the top 3, but that's still quite a statement. But why do I love this game so much? Brawl attempts something different when it comes to fighters. Rather than depleting your sole opponent's life bar with arcane button and joystick sequences which fire fireballs from your hands , you bash yo...

      SSBB- A true sucessor to the excellent Melee. 0

      Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the game I bought a Wii for, and it has not let me down, there is a great roster of characters, and some of the new additions are truly great (here's looking at you Pit and Meta Knight!) and fun to play, the characters animations are definitely top notch, a big improvement on melee.The sound is great, with a seemingly endless amount of game music, all very nostalgic. The loading times are massive compared to what I expected, and along with the gimped random online fea...
